In April 1941, Hungarian forces entered Novi-Sad. When a small underground group operating against them was discovered, the Hungarians cut the area off from the rest of the country and put it under curfew. For three days, from the 21-23 of January 1942, with the city completely surrounded, Hungarian soldiers ran wild and committed numerous atrocities. In temperatures of 20° below zero and in heavy snow, 500 Serbs and 800 Jews were taken from their homes and brought to killing pits or the shores of the Danube and murdered. In April 1944 the Germans rounded up the rest of the Jews of Novi-Sad, an estimated 1,600 people, and deported them to Auschwitz.
